Power-Up feature boosts Hunter’s new RX16 lift

Nov. 14, 2011

Hunter Engineering Co.’s RX16 scissor lift combines a space-saving, low-profile design with strong power. The lift has advanced features to provide the most wide-ranging and efficient level of service possible with one lift, notes Hunter.

The dual-capacity system offers the ground-clearance advantages of a standard-capacity lift to handle most vehicles. Plus, Hunter has added a patented Power-Up feature to boost capacity up to 16,000 lbs., if needed.

Surface-mount installations offer a class-leading 76-inch maximum height and a low drive-on height of only 9 inches, allowing clearance for vehicles with low ride height or low-hanging spoilers.

The RX16 can also be installed in a shallow recess that sets the runways flush to the floor when fully lowered. Flush-mount installs eliminate the need for long approach ramps to accommodate shops where bay space is at a premium.

Hunter’s exclusive Hi-Speed feature accelerates service with raise and lowering times up to 40% faster when servicing light vehicles. A two-stage hydraulic pump controls the fast rise and descent and also automatically slows the lift during the last several inches of descent for a soft, safe landing.
